Yeah, that's a fair comparable.

With all the stupidity going on with contracts, I bet Doan gets $4-5 mil and 4-5 years from some nut job team.  Maybe even more if the truly insane attempt a cap circumvention contract with some trailing "retirement" years tacked on.

Shawn Simpson (former scout with the Leafs, Caps, etc) was on the radio yesterday and said that he expects him to get 3 years and $5M per on the open market.  I think that is virtually a given at this point.

Since Doan has repeatedly come out and said that he has no wish to relocate his family, I suspect that he fears the Coyotes will move in the near future and he doesn't want to get pulled away too far (Quebec).  I'm betting he goes to a California team for next 2-3 years so he can keep the fam in Phoenix area and then retire.

Just my own speculation though.  I would love to have had his character on the Leafs, but I don't think that was ever going to happen.

For all the talk of the "wear and tear" on Doan, it's worth remembering he's only ever played past the first round of the playoffs once. That certainly saves on some of this "mileage" people are so afraid of.

Some, sure, but he's also played in five World Championships.

I think we've all clearly established that the World Championships don't count.

Not against it, but I think he goes back to Phoenix unless someone grossly overpays.

Well, if they are, Burke needs to start moving some bodies, unless he is going to play some forwards on the back end.

Probably, but, from the sounds of things, the instability with the ownership situation there is making him question re-upping with them. I think LA is probably ahead of the pack, due to their proximity to Phoenix, but, there's also some talk his wife wants to move back to BC and such. The situation there is very much in flux.

Doan on the Leafs would be great. Would make up for any lost depth on the wing if JVR's transition to centre goes smoothly. But yeah, I won't be holding my breath.

If he goes anywhere other than Phoenix, it's probably Vancouver.

There is some suggestion that the Leafs are willing to do that.

If he is, I think Burke is badly looking for another leader on this team.  Doan would bring that for sure, even if he isn't going to bring a whole stack of offensive production.

edit: But yes, we should remember this is coming from Kevin "I like to bait Leafs fans by saying things that get them going" McGran and of course Loud Howard jumped in 10 seconds after Kevin posted his little tidbit last night.
